The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a program that aims to provide funding to people with disabilities to help them access the supports and services they need to live independently and achieve their goals. The NDIS operates on the principle that every person with a disability has unique needs and requirements and deserves tailored support. This article discusses how the NDIS determines the amount of funding an NDIS participant receives and the process involved in securing this funding.
Plan Reassessment Meetings
Plan reassessment meetings are essential in determining how much funding an NDIS participant receives. The participant’s current health status, progress, and goals are discussed during these meetings. This allows NDIS planners to determine how many of the participant’s goals have been achieved and how many are outstanding. Additionally, these meetings provide an opportunity to identify barriers preventing participants from achieving their goals. Identifying these barriers allows NDIS planners to tailor their funding and support to meet the participants’ needs better.
Reports from Therapists and Service Providers
Reports from therapists and service providers are essential in securing funding for NDIS participants. These reports outline new goals to be achieved, therapy plans, and the required funding to meet these goals. The plan reassessment reports must be thorough and provide evidence to support the recommended therapy plan. This allows NDIS planners to make informed decisions about funding and support. The reports must provide justification for ongoing support needs (i.e., how that will assist participants in achieving their NDIS goals) otherwise it may impact the funding the participant receives.
Budget and Funding
The NDIS provides funding to participants to help them achieve their goals and increase their independence. This funding is allocated according to the participant’s needs and goals, as outlined in their plan. The participant can control how they use their funding and choose which service providers they want to use. However, if the funding is NDIA managed, participants will only be able to engage service providers that are NDIS-registered.
The participant’s plan includes a budget for funding support and services. The budget can be adjusted over time, depending on the participant’s progress and changing needs.
Participants need to use their funding wisely and efficiently. Support and services that help them achieve their goals should be prioritised. They can work with their support coordinator or local area coordinator to develop a plan for using their funding most effectively. Participants should also know the rules and guidelines around how their funding can be used by reviewing the NDIS guidelines to ensure that their funding is utilised appropriately.

Participants can access various support and services to help them achieve their goals. Health Journey Partner provides community-based allied health services, including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Exercise Physiology, Dietetics, Speech Pathology, Psychology and Counselling in these regions. The reports written by our therapists not only meet the NDIS standards and requirements but consist of comprehensive information that is easy for NDIS planners to understand.
In conclusion, the NDIS is vital in funding people with disabilities to help them achieve their goals and live independently. Their individual needs and goals determine how much funding is received. Thorough reports from therapists and service providers are critical in securing funding for NDIS participants.
